Watchtower is a very well tuned "LEGAL" corporation.... It answers questions, and directs it's 'members' / clients to respond to questions in a very "I am not going to tell you anything more than you ask me, and if you don't ask the right question, I am not going to help you out" manner.
When I went to see the Candice Conti appeal trial, the judge asked Jim McCabe "Who puts the field service lists on the 'bulletin' board for all to see and use?"
Now, the point the judge was trying to get at was: Do elders make the list? Did elders assign Candice to work with Jonathan Kendrick? If they DID assign her to work with them, and they knew about it, then ....
However, Jim McCabe (WT lawyer) answered the judge directly and sneakily, basically saying: 'Anyone can put it on the board, even a little kid can pin it up on the board, people walk by that board all the time'
Is that "true"? .... TECHNICALLY, yes (the kid would get in trouble, and most kids/ women/ teenagers do nothing to that board) But he did not volunteer that elders make the list, and assign book study/ field service groups, and I don't believe he was asked a further question about it.
Loesch: All of us consider him to be a part of the "Watchtower, Bible and Tract Society", we would say he has influence, right? After all, he is a 'GB' ... However, WT is structured with many corporations, many names, many positions so that IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT, or if you do not ask the EXACT question, the EXACT way, you will get no help from them. The lawyers know this, and helped Loesch reply. He could/would have been subpoenaed if he did not answer this correctly. What Loesch said was "technically correct"
Yes, the WT knows EXACTLY what it is doing.
